With the new school year comes a lot of changes. New students, new curriculum, and new strategies are just a few of the things that you might see. In addition to these things, new tech tends to get added to classrooms. 1:1 devices are becoming more popular in schools. In a lot of classrooms, windows devices are a top choice. When you add something new, especially tech, the question that often comes up is “how do I manage this in my classroom?”

How to Manage Windows Devices

So how do you manage windows devices in a 1:1 environment? You develop ground rules and download a classroom management software system. Students need to know expectations around the devices they are being given to use in class and what the consequences are if they don’t follow the rules. A classroom management software system helps you back up the already established ground rules.
